  1. What do you need to do with the XU4 "gleam ASAP"?
  2. Quite expensive : Turris Omnia for gigabits/s fiber internet. for ADSL line, Lamobo-R1 is fine.
  3. write protected? yes and no, that is the purpose of the sd_fusing.sh script to allow boot0 to be rewritten. https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib/blob/a82dc77aee0c286de600192365922dc74741185f/patch/u-boot/u-boot-odroidxu-next/xu4_sd_fusing.patch 1/ the eMMC2SD converter Hardkernel provides cannot see boot0/1/etc. internal partitions. 2/ Only a XU4 booted from SD card can do that & use sd_fusing.sh script 3/ if you don't overwrite boot0 of eMMC, you have a creepy uboot 2012.07 which will probably fail with single partion/vanilla kernel. you cannot rely on Hardkernel for software, o
  4. Me. I haven't seen uboot 2012.07 working with a single partition. I can be wrong, of course. And anyway, without overwriting boot0 partition on eMMC with a proper uboot & blobs, I have tested, you are not gonna make it working. In the best case, SD could work. my next step would have been to test more fully how uboot 2016.09 & legacy kernel works (HDMI stuff & so on) but... read your words. A project is to attract people, not repeal them.
  5. @zador.blood.stain @mrneilypops XU4 : uboot 2012.07 needs a dual boot partition. So uboot 2016.09 is needed as https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib/pull/520 or a switch back to dual partitions for legacy kernel (with uboot 2016.09, a writing/booting to a SD card is needed, then somewhere in the SD card there is sd_fusing.sh to write the boot loader in "boot0" partition) @zador.blood.stain: better switch back to dual partition for legacy kernel on XU4 for the moment.
  6. @zador.blood.stain You did good about the missing kernel options. it is running. (Still need the update to rename or use xu4.dtb instead of xu3) but ok!!!! http://pastebin.com/Gwyuh7Kv http://pastebin.com/sVjga3bL the diff http://pastebin.com/zyanC78b probably we need to unify boot.cmd now both legacy/vanilla can boot with single partition uboot 2016.09 edit: uboot 2016.09 & legacy kernel, the fan doesn't seem to work edit2: so both legacy/vanilla boots with uboot 2016.09 with the diff (on SD, eMMC to be confirmed)
  7. @zador.blood.stain yes it "kind of" boots, but the system cannot go any further with root=<null> Sure the dtb file renaming is a "detail" I can handle.
  8. Board Branch Boot Network HDMI Install Date Performed by link ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lamobo R1 Legacy ? ? ? ? ? ? Lamobo R1 Vanilla ? ? ? ? ? ? Odroid XU4 Legacy
  9. reading this uboot doesn't seem to be able to pass root= to the kernel edit: with uboot 2016.09 & legacy kernel I had to rename /boot/dtb/*xu4* with xu3
  10. @zador.blood.stain I have tried uboot 2012.07 & boot.ini, uboot 2016.09 & boot.cmd (with and without UUID, removing ArmbianEnv.txt as well, putting /dev/mmcblk0p1 for root) but I end always with [ 7.905375] [c6] VFS: Cannot open root device "(null)" or unknown-block(0,0): error -6 [ 7.912127] [c6] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions: [ 7.920918] [c6] b300 31276032 mmcblk0 driver: mmcblk [ 7.926612] [c6] b301 1214464 mmcblk0p1 65a81a70-01 [ 7.932308] [c6] 0800 488386576 sda driver: sd [ 7.937370] [
  11. @zador.blood.stain logs for legacy XU4 short: [ 7.905185] [c6] VFS: Cannot open root device "(null)" or unknown-block(0,0): error -6 [ 7.911928] [c6] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions: [ 7.920718] [c6] b300 31276032 mmcblk0 driver: mmcblk [ 7.926411] [c6] b301 1214464 mmcblk0p1 01380d35-01 [ 7.932109] [c6] 0800 488386576 sda driver: sd [ 7.937171] [c6] 0801 488383488 sda1 e72d222d-01 [ 7.942452] [c6] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
  12. just an idea: would we create a subforum of Development for testing reports like Debian/Ubuntu Allwinner A10/A20, Allwinner H3, Amlogic, Freescale i.MX6x, Other boards with sticky stuff Or anything to have an overview for reports/status? just an idea.
  13. in case it can help, I have copied the kernels I compile for my L-R1 + a package with older swconfig and/or zip with binary http://guillaume.romagny.free.fr/armbian_kernel/
  14. @zador.b.s your latest updates for XU4/next (uboot 2016.09) are working fine on SD, I will check when possible for legacy edit: for eMMC, the sd_fusing.sh script is needed to wipe out uboot 2012.07 from "boot0" with 2016.09. if not wiped, booting is weird/KO.
  15. my TODO list: 1/ (from zador.b.s) can you please test default branch on XU4 and report here? Last time command line didn't pass from u-boot to the kernel for some reason. 2/ looking why u-boot 2016.09 was not compiling. 3/ checking if 2016.05 can boot legacy kernel 4/ adding some documentation 5/ L-R1 https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib/issues/511#issuecomment-256111716
  16. Please provide your /etc/fstab file. Are you sure the network connexion is properly established when the automounting is started.
  17. @zador.blood.stain 1/ ok, pulled 3 files changes. Your UUID architecture is like a charm. On the 3rd testing, the SDcard was booting & system running (Jessie). I guess eMMC will be working as well because it was working with root=LABEL=rootfs (to be confirmed yet) 2/ initrd was already implemented and working for XU4 next, so no changes here. 3/ I will be looking when possible about why u-boot 2016.09 was not compiling. Still uboot 2016.05 can be used for both SD/eMMC (huge move from 2012.07) 4/ I will check if 2016.05 can boot legacy kernel 4/ I will be looking
  18. just a crazy idea A downgrade from jessie to wheezy https://duckduckgo.com/?q=downgrade+jessie+wheezy&ia=web
  19. @dvachon please don't be so hard. Currently the small Armbian team is doing a lot, so much that I just cannot follow. There is a lot of progress and so far quite properly architectured. The only big issue, the team is too small and barely can communicate properly. That has led to a huge misunderstanding with zador.blood.stain & I (that I am sorry) What are your questions?
  20. @jeansburger As Igor writes, last time I have tested jessie (& a little bit xenial). Wheezy/XU4 has been removed from the distro list for a while.

  21. please, is it useful if I would test MBR/PARTUUID for XU4 (as Zador is thinking of)? (instead of the former LABEL testing I did for SD/eMMC for next) in case I am on the proper path as of http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/2454-fel-mass-storage-or-writing-images-directly-to-emmc/?p=18115
  22. Hello TK, were the SD & eMMC using GPT or MBR? I am a little lost about PARTUUID which is/was originally dedicated to GPT OR is there now an option (clean "trick") to identify datas (partition) in the MBR as a PARTUUID? Zador wasn't clear about this point. Only mentioning about shorter version of PARTUUID (edit) is it http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1583540 ? When reading eMMC spec - boot0/1 are SLC NAND memory (Odroid size = 4MB) - rpmb is a security feature mimicking a partition (4MB) - the remaining of the eMMC is MLC NAND for Samsung (if
  23. Hello Igor, I am not sure it is even possible in general. At least, the XU4 eMMC, the PC-SD2eMMC converter only displays the /dev/mmcblk0 (& not the other partitions boot0 boot1 rpmb) And what I have tested so far, you need a kernel with eMMC magement to access all the partitions.
  24. @nz1 Armbian crew advises to buy legitimate Samsung EVO sdcard as reliable (32GB / 8 USD at gearbest) your story shows the card (or writer) is very low quality but still working when writing @ 1MB/s (which is lesser than "class 2")
